Kenny Rankin – What Matters Most lyrics

It's not how long we held each other's hand
What matters is how well we loved each other

It's not how far we travelled on our way
Of what we found to say
It's not the spring you see, but all the shades of green

It's not how long I held you in my arms
What matters is how sweet the years together

It's not how many summertimes we had to give to fall
The early morning smiles we tearfully recall
What matters most is that we loved at all.

It's not how many summertimes we had to give to fall
The early morning smiles we tearfully recall
What matters most is that we loved at all.

What matters most is that we loved at all.

    What matters most song is a very nice song. The writer or the composer of the song is trying to tell someone that even though they do not have each other together that long but the love they have for each other was true and faithful. Maybe they separated or the woman died that's why.
    When we love someone, it really doesn't matter if how long you have been together but how you trully love, respect and treated well each other. It's not the years that count but the true love between the two of you.

    Love is beautiful. Even if you are no longer together but what you shared together is so real, so perfect. The love, care and respect will always be there. Forever. Sometimes we have to let go because that's the right thing to do but what matters most is that we loved at all.

    Hello B. I would like you to know that you will remain on ur special spot in my heart. Nobody can replace you. Thank you for loving me when were together. Regrets. Yes there is. But too late. We seperate ways. Now we both belong to somebody else. Are you happy and contented now?. We were not given a chance to talk. To hear each others side. None of us made the move to reach out. Been thinking whats going on with you, where are you, are we gonna be with each other again? Lots of questions running on my mind. Now it's clear. Were not meant to be. Walang forever sa love story natin. Sad to know the truth our road separated. We haven't seen each other for a long time, I've been thinking of lots of things. Still hoping we could patch things up. Maybe we coud give it another try to make it work. A second chance. But its to late now. I know. All I do is to wish you happiness. Good luck to ur new found love, you desserve to be happy. Ur one of a kind. Always take care of urself, take care of ur new love, make ur life complete and contented. God Bless to both of you. I'm really sorry for my short comings when were together. Thank you. I love you. Goodbye. Goodbye. Goodbye. Friendship is all we can be now.
